What we learned from each other and about each other last week in just 60 minutes:
Forum attendees from around the country and overseas shared examples of what has worked for them in rebuilding their businesses, what has changed, and what they need. Genevieve Walsh, Walsh's Home Repairs (Charlottesville, Virginia area) got some ideas to help them hire the right people.

The Last Word — resource recommendations and ideas from Jan Triplett, BSC (Austin and the world). This week an article on getting customer re-engagement because customers have changed as we have all found out.
We are finding great “business buddies” willing to talk openly and frankly about their business and share their expertise at the Reinventing Business Forum. It is so great to get to know and understand each other more than just to talk superficially like in a traditional in person or online meeting. The added benefit is that we get information from others in many industries and from all over the country and overseas.
What I know is that when we come together, we may not be able to be at our "best" right now but we can find "better" and "acceptable" ways to do business that are realistic and practical and benefit ourselves, others, and the planet, the triple bottom line!
